Alliance leaders, no matter how well their alliance is doing up there, should never forget that some people just like to spin, hunt and dart more than to battle. And as that’s just as much an essential part of this game as well, they shouldn’t force people to do something they just don’t like.
Also as tournaments are always during weekends, you shouldn’t forget there are dads in your alliance that get their precious (Bi-)weekly time with their kids or even kids that get their precious time with their parents or (bi-) weekly time with one of them. Some people work full throttle the entire week and just need their QT with their families or loved ones… nobody, NOBODY has a right to force anybody into doing the tournament or even “only” doing 10 takedowns.
If your members are active (battling or hunting) they all contribute towards your missions. All in their own way and within their possibilities. You’re not running a small company (although it may feel that way, as I already wrote several posts about) you’re not gaining anything from the rewards that benefits your family or theirs in any way (unless you hunt and battle together with them) it’s a game and you have no right to force your personal goals onto anyone.
You can ask your members to participate, we do. We even tell our lower levelled players they shouldn’t bother if tournament means they lose 4-5 times but that their 1000 points help us all get better rewards. If they don’t enter, they don’t have to. No penalty, no kick. Nobody likes getting slaughtered, and maybe they have other reasons not to enter. I don’t care. Most of my members do it, just because we ask them to that’s awesome. But they shouldn’t feel forced to do anything. This game is just as much enjoyment to them as it is to me and it should stay that way. If I start forcing them for my own enjoyment I take away their enjoyment. How is that justifiable?
